Time For Action?

Speaking in the Sun Room of the Memorial Union at Iowa State University, State Senator Rob "Boss" Hogg promoted his book on the Greenhouse Effect, err Global Warming, err Climate Change.

State senator calls for climate control action

"Boss" Hogg droned on for an hour, contributing to the higher levels of carbon dioxide by expelling copious amounts of CO2 and the scientific community is united in that fact.

It's a good thing for "Boss" Hogg that there isn’t the slightest evidence that more carbon dioxide has caused more extreme weather.

As for extreme weather, caused by global warming, it is not supported by science.

“General statements about extremes are almost nowhere to be found in the literature but seem to abound in the popular media,” climate scientist Gavin Smith of the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies said last month. “It’s this popular perception that global warming means all extremes have to increase all the time, even though if anyone thinks about that for 10 seconds they realize that’s nonsense.”

It turns out that the overall effect of climate change will be positive for humankind and the planet.

Like Tornadoes in Iowa, with this year seeing the fewest such storms since comprehensive tracking began 33 years ago. The National Weather Service said that's one less than the previous low of 16 set in 2012.
